This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 31 January 1958, page 5: While the Wellington Battery -- No. 122 -- was proceeding to its firing area at Ohau Beach on Wednesday morning this Landrover skidded in gravel and overturned, sustaining only slight damage. None of its occupants were injured. However it provided, for the workshops personnel some realistic training in mobile recovery work, and here, guided by a Regular Force sergeant-major, the vehicle is being lifted on the jib of a Scammell recovery truck to the tray of another truck for removal to Linton.
